Armed Forces Day

Sleaford — 21 June 2021

Armed Forces Day Flag Raising Service

9:00 am to 4:00 pm

We begin our celebrations with the traditional Armed Forces Flag Raising ceremony in the Grounds of St Deny’sΒ  Church, alongside Sleaford Market Place square at 10.30am on the 21st June. This will feature a Veteran Bugler and we hope will be attended (subject to Covid-19 restrictions in place on this date) by representatives from our local RAF Cranwell and RAF Digby, local dignitaries, veterans, local army and air cadets. The Vicar of St Denys Church, Sleaford will bless the Ceremony and veterans from the Royal British Legion, SAFFA, will also take part along with representation from RAF Cranwell and RAF Digby.Β  We also aim to recognise our Veterans by awarding Veterans Badges at a dedicated lunch at a date to be advised. All of the above is subject to Covid-19 restrictions and government guidance in place on the 21st June 2021.
